Wastewater pump for Junee Prime Lamb

Friday, 24 September, 2021 | Supplied by: Hydro Innovations

Junee Prime Lamb is one of the leading producers of premium quality lamb in Australia. A family-owned and -operated business since 1997, the company specialises exclusively in prime Australian lamb, and supplies its products to many parts of the world.

Its lamb processing facility, which is located on the outskirts of Junee, occupies 182,000 m2 and employs nearly 300 highly trained staff. The production line is equipped with the latest technology to maintain strict hygiene standards and the business regularly reviews its processes to ensure they meet the highest quality standards for the industry.

When Operations Manager Scott Newton needed a wastewater pump for the facility, he wanted to source the best and most reliable product for the job. Newton already had quite a lot of experience with Gorman Rupp self-priming pumps at another large NSW abattoir and because of their history of reliability, ease of maintenance and long service life [even when operating in very harsh conditions], he opted for Gorman Rupp pumps again in the Junee upgrade.

The team at Hydro Innovations offered a Gorman-Rupp T3A60S-B “Super T Series” self-priming solids handling pump. It is capable of handling solids up to 63 mm and also stringy materials because of its “self-cleaning wear plate system”. The pump also has a lightweight inspection cover-plate to allow quick access for operators to inspect pump internals or remove large pieces of debris. Being self-priming, it could be located at surface level, up to 7.5 m above the wastewater level.

The result

Newton has been very happy with his investment and firmly believes that buying quality equipment provides not only tangible returns in operational efficiency, but also intangible returns in peace of mind.

The Gorman-Rupp Super T Series range is available in sizes from 2” [50 mm] through to 10” [250 mm], with flows from 3 L/s through to 200 L/s. The range is also available in various materials of construction to suit specific applications, such as stainless steel components for corrosive wastewater and hardened components for abrasive fluids.
